    • lost response

      There are features in the conversation style that are nice, but I'm finding more issues than benefit. I received an email and replied to the message. The person I responded to forwarded the message to another person asking for a reply. When the 3rd person replied, I was a CC on the message. I didn't get an inbox notification (or junk mail) that I had a new message related to this conversation. I had to dig thru the message to figure out the order.
      After struggling with it and reading lots of messages here looking for answers, I decided to…

      • To-do-list

        Beta doesn't give you an option to have the tasklist beside the calender, that's a minus, it looks more modern with beta. Or if it is possible with the task-list/to-do list on beta there is no clear sign that shows you that.

        • Fix needed for block and phishing report feature.

          Fix needed for blocking & reporting phishing emails. I used to be able to click on an email in the junk folder and report it or block it without opening it. That is no longer an option and it should be; we should not have to open the malicious email in order to report it as phishing or to block.

            • Contact list

              when i am sending emails to multiple contacts my list ends halfway through and i then have to add them separately. The other thing is when i put in a contact name who is in my contacts and regularly used it will come up with all this people who are not on my contact list but does not show me the one that is. It concerns me that this may happen to other people who i do not know and they are given my email address.

              • I'm trying to read my unread emails. I filter them to show my unread emails. when I'm done reading, it takes me back to the focused emails

                When going through unread emails after choosing the unread filter, it is not easy to return to your list of unread emails. You must click "other", then "filter" for unread, then find your spot again. it's not very efficient when trying to go through unread emails especially if these emails go back a few weeks and other emails have been read in between.
                Thank you.

                • Too much mail

                  There needs to be a way for account holders to block all mail until the time they would like to receive it where it is also blocked from the server so that it is not sitting in someone's server or there account unknowingly. Some people don't access their accounts by phone nor do they have the time all day to keep connecting. New mail notifications by phone are ok but with the many that might come through via advertisers or otherwise this is a problem. 01-15-2019

                    • FIS YOUR BLOCK FEATURE AND PUT IT BACK ON THE HEADER IN BOLD NOT ON A PULL DOWN TAB.

                      Please make the block feature work why is it hidden in a tab? You shouldn't have to select each item separately for the block feature to be available. There should be a block feature for all if one so chooses. It should be bold on the main header not hidden in a pull down tab.

                      • Two-Step verification doesn't work

                        Two-Step verfication can be bypassed by getting to the two-step verification screen and then opening a new tab and going to the outlook log-in screen again

                        • Backups

                          1. It would be nice to import pst files from another outlook.com / hotmail.com account directly without having to route the account there. I simply want to move some mailboxes and then do a consolidated backup. Maybe I am not seeing this feature somewhere.

                          2. Could a datestamp be put on the pst files for when you submit / export a backup?

                          Just a few thoughts, thanks.

                                PLEASE can you re-instate the ability to drag and drop an email into a Calendar Task. This feature does not work in the standard Calendar layout OR the Beta Calendar layout. Please bring this feature back! Cannot understand why it has been removed, such a simple and effective thing to be able to do but now can't. Really frustrating guys! Please look into this and re-instate.

                                    • Outlook 365

                                      Desktop office allows my to pin Tasks into my inbox so that I can track/flag projects that come through email. I'd like to replicate this in outlook 365, is that possible? I would think a task icon next to user account and settings would suffice.

                                      • Selection Area for Deleting Mass Number of Emails

                                        The selection area for deleting emails without opening the emails need to be larger. It's ridiculous how much time I need to allot to deleting a bunch of emails at once should I click just slightly off of the circle and end up opening the email which deselects everything I already selected.

                                        • reading pane color

                                          Allow user to change reading pane background color and text color. The dark office theme is great but the reading pane is always white background with black text. I would like the option to customize this to a dark background with light text, but not just black and white, I'd like the ability to change the colors to lower the contrast and make reading more comfortable.
